I know I have heard this before - couldn’t tell you where or when. Did some research and came up with this.

Pigeon Park is a track on The Congress of Wonders album ‘Revolting’ (1970)

“From the San Francisco Bay Area, the Congress of Wonders comedy team made a couple of albums reflecting the concerns of the late-'60s/early-'70s hippie counterculture: drugs, sex, and political/social satire. Like the Firesign Theatre and National Lampoon, they used the studio as a tool to enhance their sketches rather than simply record them for posterity, incorporating sound effects and tightly edited overlapping dialogue. They weren't quite as sophisticated, and were a little less subtle (and more stoner-directed) in their brand of humor, sometimes framing it within mock commercials, soap operas, and plays.” ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

I haven't thought of Firesign Theater in years. Need to poke around and see if there is any of their stuff still out there. Nick Danger...I don't have a key, but there's a lid in the car!
